The Agenda: Local government briefs for 1.6.20

Short-term home rental regs, other requests go before city planning board

The Richmond Planning Commission meets Monday at 1:30 p.m. Business on the regular agenda includes a public hearing on proposed rules for short-term residential rentals in the city.

Related to that topic, on the commission’s consent agenda, Mark Baker with Baker Development Resources seeks a special-use permit to convert a building at 18 W. Franklin St. into a five-unit short-term-rental tourist home. The 19th-century structure beside the Downtown YMCA was built as a residence and most recently has been used as offices.

David Johannas of Johannas Design Group seeks a rezoning to allow up to 18 apartments at 1000 W. Franklin St. The request is related to an infill development planned between two existing buildings along Franklin near Harrison Street. Johannas is leading the project for property owner Ronald Nixon.

Also on the agenda is a special-use request that would allow The Salvation Army to move its Central Virginia headquarters to 1900 Chamberlayne Ave. Full meeting agenda here.
